Collection Continues For Hurricane Harvey Victims

The American Legion Post in Fond du Lac continues collecting donations for Hurricane Harvey victims as the U.S. braces for the threat from Hurricane Irma. Squadron Commander Mike Kollmansberger says they continue collecting non-perishable foods, personal hygiene items, new socks and underwear and other items, but bottled water is an essential item. Many water treatment plants in Texas are down and out due to the Hurricane Harvey damage. They would like to fill the semi-trailer by Sunday and send it out, but might delay that trip with Hurricane Irma bearing down. Project Linus of Fond du Lac and Dodge County is also making fleece tied blankets to distribute to kids in areas affected by Hurricane Harvey.
